Mumbai’s former police commissioner M N Singh interacted with reporters and shared his opinion about Maharashtra Government’s decision to handover Sheena Bora murder case to the CBI. He criticized the BJP led government by saying that it is a confused and inept government.

While pointing out loopholes in the state’s decision-making, Mr. Singh said that the way state machinery has handled Sheena Murder case is questionable. When investigation was in its crucial stage, the government transferred Rakesh Maria. The state made another mistake by suggesting that Rakesh Maria as DG home guards would continue investigating the case.

M N Singh pointed out that the DG for home guards has no powers under criminal procedure code to investigate, unless he is delegated special rights to do so. Plus, during the last few days, Devendra Fadnavis Government also learned about Ahmed Javed’s relations with Peter, so, they hurriedly transferred the case of the CBI.

Mr. Singh believes there was no need to transfer the case to CBI as Maria had already asked the income tax and ED to investigate the financial angle in the case. The money trail was handed over to the economic offences wing of Mumbai police. The unit has investigated many similar cases, and people in the force are competent enough to handle Sheena Bora murder case.

There is another angle as well. Story published by Economic Times suggests that Maria was not too keen to continue investigation in the Sheena Bora murder case after being promoted as DG home guards.  According to statement made by K P Bakshi, the state’s additional chief secretary for home ministry, even the new Mumbai police Chief Javed Ahmed wanted the case to be handed over to the CBI. Reports suggest that currently there are around 9,928 cases pending with the CBI.
